We rounded up a bunch of our pals from around the Internet and asked them how they're spending their Thanksgivings.
We have a Thanksgiving plans roundup after this post, and then we're off for the rest of the week! Feel free to use this thread if you're lonely, or want to talk about something amazing you bought on Black Friday, or how you're avoiding Black Friday. Have a good time, everyone!
"God damn it, Charlie, go upstairs and take a shower!" were my Dad's first words to his half-brother when he arrived at our home on Thanksgiving Day, 2004.
News this week that a Wal-Mart store in Ohio was holding an employee-to-employee food drive "so Associates in Need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner," reignited the debate over the low wages Wal-Mart employees earn.

Helen has a really amazing Thanksgiving letter she posted for her family on the blog.
